- What are coding conventions in LaTeX? 2 answers
I am very new to LaTeX.
A newline in the input file does not mean anything to LaTeX. An empty line in the input file means a new paragraph.
Trouble is, when I view my sources with different text editors on different displays, they look very different (and always bad). So I find myself chopping lines to the about 80-th character or so.
This brings the MS Word problem - introduce a line, or even a single word, and you need to edit the whole following paragraph in order that it is nicely positioned on the display (talking about the .tex file).
--soft-wrap wraps lines around, but is not pleasing to the eye, plus a single move of the cursor could scroll a whole screen - hardly intuative.
How do I write .tex source file, so that anyone - using an IDE or just any editor, can view and edit them comfortable?
